Nokia 3310 4G quietly launched in China, expected to go global in March

Nokia 3310 4G announced with VoLTE and Wi Fi Hotspot capabilities

It is also expected that HMD Global might showcase the Nokia 3310 4G at the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. Apparently, it's been working well for them because the company is now introducing a 4G version of the phone in China.

HMD Global has silently announced a new feature phone.

Nokia 3310 was announced previous year at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The lack of a public statement means that HMD Global might be waiting for the MWC 2018 trade show to kick to officially make the announcement.

Nokia 3310 4G will be accessible in two colour choices - Fresh Black and Deep Black.

Nokia 3310 4G is running on on YunOS 5.2.0 which is based on Android Open Source Project (AOSP). Furthermore, if that wasn't sufficient, it also supports advanced features, such as, Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Hotspot.

The Nokia 3310 4G is mostly the same as the 2G and 3G version of the 3310. But now, after nearly three whole months, HMD Global unveils the Nokia 3310 4G powered by YunOS.

This Nokia 3310 4G variant will surely launch in India, but the launch date is unknown at the moment. It is available as an upgrade to the modernised Nokia 3310 that was in a 2G variant in India May a year ago.

The YunOS-based Nokia 3310 4G features a 2.4-inch QVGA (240×320 pixels) colour display. In addition to LTE and VoLTE support, this bad boy has Wi-Fi hotspot capabilities going for it, as well as 256MB RAM and 512MB internal storage space.

JioPhone has an additional front-facing camera in addition to the 2MP rear snapper, supports NFC and packs a bigger 2,000mAh battery.

It's unclear how much the Nokia 3310 4G costs in China and if the company has any plans of launching it in other markets across the globe. All of these features require power and thus the battery life is down to five hours of estimated talk time on LTE as opposed to 15 hours on 2G.
